Genocide Committed Against The Palestinians

How is it possible that Western leaders, over and over, pray the mantra of the condemnation of Hamas' killing 1,400 people in Israel and at the same time they defend Israel when it has already killed over 9,000 civilians in Gaza, carries out progroms and killing-sprees in the West Bank, and obviously is trying to ethnically cleans the Gaza Strip of its 2.3 million Palestinian inhabitants?

How can we explain this much wilful blindness and wilful support for Genocide? Dr. Vijay Prashad is trying to approach an answer.

Dr. Vijay Prashad is an American-based Indian historian, author, journalist, political commentator, and Marxist intellectual. He is the executive-director of Tricontinental: Institute for Social Research. He has a PhD from the University of Chicago in 1994.
